EditorialGuy. Sorry to hear of your struggles. I was hit by panda 2.5 and then recovered and went on until the panda/penguin/panda update when penguin started. I lost 2/3rds of my traffic. At that point I changed tactics. I focused on Social, Syndication, and Signals. It took 9 months but then the slow and steady loss of traffic stopped and I started to regain what was lost. Today I am almost back to where I once was and with the addition of the social network, the two sites have 4 times the page views. I do believe you are right in some way concerning the "amount" of real estate you control on the net. The reversal happened when I started the social network and took a couple of my large categories and made them subdomains.
